Introductory flight event planned

The membership of the Rowan Area EAA Chapter invites folks to spend a day with local sport pilots and learn what it takes to become a recreational pilot on Saturday at The EAAgles Nest Sport Aviation Center at Rowan County Airport.
There will be a cookout lunch at 11 a.m. and then talks from aviation enthusiasts, pilots and flight instructors with a mini-ground school and question and answer session.
The chapter urges people to escape from the world theyíre used to.
More than 170 individual events are scheduled for EAAís second annual International Learn to Fly Day (ILTFD), set for Saturday.
Tens of thousands of future aviators will have the opportunity take that first step toward discovering the fun, freedom and accomplishment of flight at this aviation community-wide effort.
EAA Chapter 1083 and other local chapters around the USA and the world are offering complementary adult orientation flights, helping connect aviators with those who have always wanted to discover flight.
These introductory flights for adults are similar to EAAís popular Young Eagles program, which has offered free flights to more than 1.6 million kids age 8-17 since 1992.
For more information contact Jack Neubacher President of EAA Chapter 1083, by e-mail at jack@fly4fun.org or 704-213-6937.
